Montreal image of the day! – Westmount park

 A peaceful place located very close to downtown. A sweet escape from the busy downtown area in a couple of minutes. You will be enjoying its serenity, sophisticatedly beautiful floral planting, three baseball diamonds, extensive playground, a wading pool, and clay and hard-surface tennis courts at Westmount Park. “A serpentine waterway flows gently beneath aged willows and past shady benches.” -City of Westmount, Ville de Westmount-
